An unique NH4-bearing sulphide, IMA 2009-071 = AMBRINOITE

More correctly ambrinoite is the first hydrated K sulfosalt found in Nature. It is a hydrated sulfosalt of potassium, arsenic, and antimony, with minor substitution of NH4.

The name is after Pierluigi Ambrino (b. 1947), a mineral collector, specializing in Piedmont and manganese deposits, who kindly provided us with the specimen studied.
